An 18th century historical drama, the film revolves around the life story of second Peshwa Baji Rao I (1700 – 1740). Here we share some the interesting elements of the film starting from the Star Cast

Ranveer Singh as Maratha Peshwa Bajirao I

In 2003, after the release of Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam Sanjay Leela Bhansali started planning for his next, Bajirao Mastani, keeping Salman Khan in mind. However, things didn’t work because the director had planned Aishwarya opposite Salman Khan. So, when they officially had a break up, SLB had to drop the whole idea of casting them altogether. Over a decade, several actors including Shah Rukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan and Ajay Devgn were considered for the role. However, nothing worked out.

Then a decade later, when Ranveer Singh sizzled in SLB’s Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram Leela, SLB approached him with this historical role, and that’s how Bhansali finally got his Bajirao in 2014 after a decade of struggle in finding the right man.

Ranveer Singh will be seen as a Maratha warrior Bajirao Ballal Bhat, the second Peshwa who ruled for 20 years from 1720 till 1740 until his death. No wonder, from more than a year, Ranveer has been hiding his baldness behind the hat, and now we know why.

The first choice for Mastani was Aishwarya Rai as mentioned above and then even Kareena Kapoor was considered for the role. Later, it even seems that Katrina Kaif was approached. Finally, Deepika Padukone was roped in along with Ranveer Singh to play Mastani after the duo sizzled the box office in Bhansali’s Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram Leela.
